While it’s true that natural beauty is the best kind of beauty, and that sex-appeal has more to do with self-confidence than anything else, there are days when something as simple as a sexy lip, or a pair of vampy eyes can help you build up a whole new attitude.

After the break, we introduce you to 9 beauty fixes that you can rely on for instant sex-appeal. Read about them now and make sure to use them during those days when casual and natural simply won’t do.

Dewy skin.

Never underestimate the power of great looking skin. Hydrate, moisturize and do fake a glow using a high quality powder highlighter. Just dust it over your cheekbones, on the centers of your lids, and on the bow of your lips for a result that you will leave you feeling gorgeous, each and every time.

Strong eyebrows.

We can’t stress enough the importance of the strong, full eyebrows in building a contemporary sexy look, as it lies in their power to alter your appearance so very effortlessly. Wear them with a bold lip colour, in a barely-there make-up look, or teamed to an intense smoky eye, and trust their effect to always be disarming.

Contoured cheeks.

While we may not all be born with perfectly sculpted cheeks, there’s nothing actually stopping us from painting them on for an extra boost of sex-appeal. Suck in your cheeks to find the right spot, and use a matte powder blush & highlighter combo to create definition and illumination.

Shimmery brown eyes.

Sometimes sex-appeal comes from something as subtle as a dash of sparkle in your eye makeup.  Focus on metallic shimmers and place them on the inner corners of your eyes, as well as under the brow bone. Trust your eyes to have that extra twinkle once the light hits your face.

Red lips.

A powerful red lip is the epitome of timeless sex-appeal, as there’s no easier way to vamp up your look. The secret lies in finding that perfect shade of red that works for you, and a formula that is moist without being super glossy.

Bronzed skin.

There’s something about the bronzed skin that makes women feel like modern goddesses. Achieved naturally, or by using a spray tanning or makeup technique, the sun-kisses skin equals effortless sex-appeal, serving as foundation for countless gorgeously sexy looks.

Smudged liner.

To put it simply, smudged liner is sexy. Carrying a modern feel about it, do use the smudged liner look whenever you want to achieve the dramatic effect of the smoky eye, but on a much softer scale.

Full lashes.

Come to think about it, no make-up look is complete without at least a coat of mascara. But ump up the volume of your lashes, and your eyes gain a whole new identity. So yes to working your mascara to its full potential, whenever you’re going for a seductive look.

Cat eyes.

Oozing sex-appeal with a signature pair of cat-eyes is both easy, and quite unavoidable. Just think of the countless ways sex-appeal can be redefined using the same inky winged eye makeup that has femme fatale written all over it.
